As part the 2011 Frank Harte Festival, Góilín Singers' Club are organising a singing tour of Glasnevin Cemetery. We meet at the main gates of the cemetery at 11am on Sunday 25th Sept. One of the people we will elebrate is John Keegan Casey who wrote The Rising of the Moon when he was 15 years old. Find more about him here 'Leo'.
The tour is free and all who have an interest in traditional singing and Irish culture are welcome to join us, we will be heading to the Brian Boro Pub for food, drinks and songs when the walk is finished.
